OK I am moving forward with this project.


Heres the hardware I will be using; basically I am re-purposing things I have.



AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055T Processorer

Gigabyte 890-GPA UD3H MB

16 gig ram

6 x 120 gig 2.5 inch drives in raid5 for system storage mounted in iStarUSA BPU-126-SA 1 x 5.25" to 6 x 2.5" SATA 6.0 Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage

3 x 2 TB western digital green drives in raid 5 for bulk store

Areca 1231 ML raid controller



Proxmox allows two type of virtualization engines engines OpenVZ witch is container based and very little performance impact and KVM which allows full virtialization. I have used openVZ stuff for years and it works great but you are limited to Linux based machines. KVM opens up the Windows world.
